§ 6  Use of Google analytics

  1. This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc. ("Google"), 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
    The use includes the "Universal Analytics" mode of operation. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across several devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus to analyze the activities of a user across all devices.
    Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA where it will be shortened. We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended to include IP anonymisation in order to guarantee anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google. You can find more information on terms of use and data protection at https://marketingplatform.google.com/about/analytics/terms/gb/ respectively.
  2. Purposes of processing: On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.
  3. Legal basis: The basis for the use of Google Analytics is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 S.1 lit. a GDPR.
  4. Recipients / categories of recipients: The recipient of the collected data is Google.
  5. Transmission to third countries: The personal data is transferred to the USA under the EU-US Privacy Shield on the basis of the adequacy decision of the European Commission. You can download the certificate here.    
  6. Duration of data storage: The data sent by us and linked to cookies, user IDs (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 14 months. Data whose retention period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month.    
  7. Rights affected: You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by preventing the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to the full extent.

If you are logged in at Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not want your profile to be associated with Google, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for advertising, market research and / or needs-based design of its website.
